Between my shadow and my soul

I am just a moth with many lives



Moths have many lives

Each flame is a Life

Each time, the pure light

Captures, dilates the eyes

Enthralls imprisons the mind

No breath, without the flame

Each breath to such a rhythm

Until the death, and the next breath

Awakens to a new flame

Lovely post, I think we all moths and we all have our personal lights.

shukran kay :) even tho the moth around the flame metaphor is overused, i guess it still has personal significance

Mk- indeed! prob with me is altho my primary light is Islam, the many waves towards it change every day!

azra- lol thanks i cant get any answer on whether moths are blind or not! it was a childhood truth..
